NARS Audacious Lipstick for Fall 2014


A new line of NARS lipsticks? Sign me up! I’ve just started getting cozy with Schiap but I don’t think she’d mind a new friend. Or two. Or three. Okay, maybe like 5. I can’t help myself! I’ve been checking out the swatches on Makeup and Beauty Blog and Temptalia and the line up is pretty darn impressive. The color range is crazy extensive and the formula sounds like it’ll be a hit too! NARS claims the new Audacious Lipsticks “delivers an intense, full coverage finish in a single stroke with nutrient rich ingredients known to smooth, moisturize and volumize.” Excuse me while I swoon.

In a dream world, every lipstick would be creamy, hydrating and look effortlessly flawless. I’m talking no settling, bleeding or clinging to dry patches. Oh, what a world that would be! I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve tried a lipstick that needed a little polishing to look its best. Thank goodness for lip scrubs! They’re great for scrubbing away flaky, dry skin and helping lipsticks apply smoothly and look their best.


Sephora Collection Dome Z Palette First Impressions

Gift cards or not, I NEEDED this palette! Yes, the all caps was necessary. Z palettes are truly life saving! I definitely appreciate the free lipsticks I scored from depotting but the free space felt so much more rewarding. I have a drawer full of blushes and highlights rolling around with type of organization. Now the Sephora Collection Dome Z Palette is only a small step but it’s still in the right direction!


Sephora Goodies!

Viggle drives me crazy sometimes but I love getting free gift cards! I recently cashed in some of my gift cards to pick up some new goodies from the Sephora Collection. I’ve been needing another Z Palette since forever and everyone is obsessed with the new Luster Matte Liquid Lipstick so my picks were really simple. Check it out!


Missed Out on MAC Dodgy Girl? There’s a Dupe for That!

Pretty much all of MAC’s limited edition collections require some stealth and lack of sleep. But the Osbournes release? Man! That required a rabbit foot, constant refreshing and lots of prayer. It was really crazy! I wasn’t surprised at all when I saw just how many people missed out on the beautiful Dodgy Girl. I was able to get my hands on one but I really wanted 2. You know, for a backup. Of course, things didn’t work out that way. I read about Nicka K’s Lavender Tint lipstick being a close dupe. So when I spotted it during my beauty supply run I had to have it!


Ruby Kisses Lip Lacquer Haul & Swatches

I really need to take a break from Instagram! Every time I open the app I find something new that I want to try. Way too tempting! A few days ago, I came across a beautiful picture of one of my followers rocking a shiny, deep blue lip. She looked so fierce! Of course, I asked what she was wearing and she told me it was the Ruby Kisses Lip Lacquer in Aruba Blue and I could probably find it at my local beauty supply. Luckily, I was able to track it down and it was so cheap ($3.99) that I grabbed 2 more!
